Is there a link to any of this discussion?  I imagine my searching for <p>
or "p element" might be futile.

Given:
<p>This is a lengthy paragraph that talks about the following table

Breaking scripts that depend on p.nextSibling to be the table and styles
that depend on p + table to work (and other various DOM issues) is an
obvious point, and I'm sure it's been discussed.
